I love living and sharing my love of Western Colorado, relating the lore surrounding the area, and expressing my love of family, including my German heritage.  Through poetry I have lived out childhood adventures, explored the Western scenery and fallen in love with my grandson. As I have delved into the world of publishing, I have discovered there are so many avenues to explore. Over the past 20 years I have published in newspapers and magazines; have helped others format and publish books; and have recently started publishing my own books. My newest publication is Self-Publishing: Sharing the Secrets, is available from Amazon or Raven Books. If you have ever wanted to be a published author, this book will take you step-by-step through the process and provide you important information about the world of publishing.
